Released: May 2008
Label: Laser’s Edge
The 2008 album by these British prog-festival mainstays hinges on two songs over 20 minutes long -- opener "The Ballad of Samuel Layne" is a real beaut that climbs to the wuthering heights of '70s Kate Bush, and "Metamorphosis" itself reaches for the skies with heavy riffs and Morse-code vocal parts worthy of "Leave It" by Yes. With violins, cellos, violas, recorders, mandolins and uilleann pipes playing a major role, the two shorter numbers sparkle, too.
